Presidential Scholar to Outstanding Senior Man: Daniel Luketic’s Journey

June 05, 2008

Daniel Luketic took advantage of every opportunity that college offered him, from obtaining a Presidential Scholarship to being named Outstanding Senior Man of the Class of 2008.Luketic majored in business administration with concentrations in finance and management. His campus activities included serving as president of Tau Pi Phi business fraternity and Sophomore Service Honorary as well as vice president of the Investment Team and Blue Key Honorary.His junior year he was involved in the BEST Program, which pairs students with business executives to gain experience and develop networking opportunities for the future. Luketic was paired with Brian Amos of Amos Communications. The wisdom gained from this experience deepened his interest in the executive role, arming him for success in the business world."I chose to major in business administration because I could learn about a wide range of industries, world events and economic issues," said Luketic.  "There were plenty of opportunities throughout my four years to add real life experience to the business curriculum, and I soon learned that this experience will speak much louder than traditional schooling." Named to the Dean’s List every semester, he served as an FYE Advocate and was a member of Alpha Lambda Delta, Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity, Student Activities Council and was elected secretary of the senior class. He also received the Shively Sophomore Award, was a Robert Hillier Scholarship recipient and was honored with The Hubert R. Pinney Senior Award in the Department of Economics, Accounting and Business Administration. He also served as a Dowling Mentor and coordinator of Emerging Leaders.It was the tight knit community that first attracted Luketic to Mount Union. He developed relationships with professors and realized their accessibility. In fact, one of his first contacts was with the president of the College who personally called to tell him that he had received a Presidential Scholarship. He is grateful that, because of this scholarship, he will be able to go on to graduate school without the financial concerns facing many college students today. In addition, he was invited to many events as a Presidential Scholar that opened doors to further opportunities for him.“This allowed me to develop a presence in front of people and observe common attributes,” said Luketic. “I was thrown into situations that made me grow as a person.“Jump at any opportunity, especially the opportunity to go to lectures and focus on your future profession,” said Luketic, upon being asked what advice he would give to future students.     Luketic is also impressed with the close, lasting relationship the alumni develop with the College. “Mount Union alumni bleed purple and I will give back to Mount Union because they gave to me,” he said. “I can identify with them now, because I have developed the same kind of attachment.”Luketic will even return to campus this summer to be married to his high school sweetheart in the Dewald Chapel.“Growing up, my mom and dad took their role as parents very seriously and gave me every advantage as I prepared for college," said Luketic upon reflecting back on the foundation for his success. "My brothers, sister and I were taught early on to always go above and beyond what is required in everything we do.  I attribute my accomplishments to my parent’s dedication and continuous support.”
